DNA Info is reporting that Lil Durk is behind held on $100,000 bond on a gun charge; his lawyer says that he is innocent.

The rapper was arrested at 3 a.m. Wednesday; police claimed he was carrying a loaded .40 caliber handgun. He'd been previously convicted of a similar crime in 2011. He's charged with unlawful use of a weapon as a felon.

Durk's attorney, Sam Adams, Jr., claims to have nine affadavits from witnesses attesting to Lil Durk's innocence of the crime, one of whom, he says, claims that the gun was his.

Durk's attorney also said that the 23-year-old rapper's wife, Nicole Covone, is pregnant and "about to pop." Doctors are planning to induce labor on Friday. "He's not guilty. He's innocent," the reporter quoted her saying after the hearing.
